Long hailed as the best guide to enjoying the state's 320 miles of coastiline, North Carolina Beaches will help you find just the right spot for a long vacation or a one-day getaway. In this completely revised third edition, Glenn Morris takes a fresh and timely look at North Carolina's ever-changing coastal landscape, with its national seashores, state parks, public beaches, wildlife refuges, and historic sites as well as the beach communities where people live, work, and play. In a beach-by-beach tour, Morris details attractions and activities and provides phone numbers, addresses, and websites to help with your trip planning. Maps show the best places to park and what facilities - campgrounds, showers, restrooms, and more - to expect. Short features on topics from bird life to tidal forces inform and entertain. This book should be the first thing beachgoers pack for a visit to our coast.
